Moving On Without Obama and Wright

During the darkest days of the presidential election, Rev. Otis Moss III contemplated leaving Trinity United Church of Christ amid the furor created by former member, now President-elect Barack Obama. During the height of the controversy fueled by the sermons of former leader Rev. Jeremiah Wright the church banned recorders from the church and increased security to the tune of $40,000 a week. The Chicago Tribune reports on the church moving forward in a new year comfortable that a former member will become President of the United States in about 2 weeks.

While Moss struggled with leading the church out of it's turmoil, with his leadership being questioned, hopefully he's emerged as a stronger spiritual leader with his faith renewed that every bad situation does pass in time.
